Sharepoint Integration Creates and Recognizes but Can't Find Folders

The problem is that the "find file" feature in the SharePoint integration doesn't work for finding folders, even when using specific folder names. It requires a file extension to locate a file, and since folders don’t have those, it doesn't recognize folders. This raises the question of how to create files within folders if the SharePoint integration cannot find the folder.

Hi @GGK1 

Good question.

Seems like the SharePoint API may have to be used: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-folders-and-files-with-rest#working-with-folders-by-using-rest

Zap action: SharePoint - API Request
